that the republicans-- what obama means is go along with me, give us your core principles and just concede everything that i want and everything the left wants and everything the democrats wants. that's not constructive and that's not the road that the republicans either should go on or want to go on. but i do think that the republican party by and large, needs to refocus on its core principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility, economic freedom, individual liberty, strong national defense because i do think that's where most of the american people are. >> megyn: but you hear that, you hear that to some extent, monica, hear that to some extent from them. but you hear from the other side they get obstinate and like kirsten said, for not wanting to raise taxes on millionaires, it's a philosophical divide that i think they're sincere, but they get mocked for and no progress. >> they've lost their way on this, haven't had a clear focus message on those core principles and you're right to point out they haven't had a charismatic messenger, a warrior to sell this back to the american people,

the republicans made a hundred steps forward and took back either one or 15 steps and then obama locked it in. why? largely because democrats in the senate did not want to be attached to the size of tax increases that the president wanted. so he has a democrat senate that's not as left wing as he is. reid may be, but reid has to take care of his own. and a republican house elected every bit as much as he was. >> let me bring jake back. you got an update from the white house about this. >> well, just what his next hundred days will look like. obviously he's talked about trying to combat gun violence and we'll see efforts legislatively right off the bat on that. also, of course, immigration reform. the president has talked about how he wants to tackle that early on in his second term. so immigration reform. that is an area that grover can talk about at length where republicans there is an area of compromise for bipartisan consensus. i also would expect, of course, some of the budgetary issues, of course, will be forced upon him because of the forced spending cuts, the so-called sequester being pushe

are sympathetic to the idea that austerity by itself isn't going create growth certainly that was president obama and many democrats and some republicans view of our own economy. the question they have for greece is will each round of loans lead to the right kind of investments and the right kinds of restructuring end of licensing and end of other things that constrain the greek economy and many consider the last communist economy in europe? and so i think what when they see the rise of it and hear a radical left party. the question is not just how the end of austerity will bring growth, but how competitiveness will come to the greek economy. either inside or outside the eurozone, the greek economy has to become more competitive. >> translator: i am completely opposed to the view that greece was the last soviet-typed european or last comes nist economy in the europe. greece is a country from the 1990s onwards has proceeded to many programs. if you can compare greece with other european countries, you'll see that a large part and strategic part public sector has now come to to the hands of the of

and the sikh coalition. >>> back to work for president and his new congress. mr. obama wasted no time diving into his new agenda. tomorrow house republicans are expected to pass a bill that will allow the government to borrow money to pay its bills for the next few months. and the debt limit deal demands democrats in the senate do something they haven't done in four years: pass a budget. >> the last time the senate has passed a budget, the ipad wasn't even invented yet. >> one of the first items on president obama's to do list is to finalize the next phase of the draw-down of u.s. troops in afghanistan. also on the president's radar, comprehensive immigration reform and a push for congress to pass tighter gun control laws. >>> and it's election day in israel, and it appears prime minister benjamin net yaw >> will get another term in office. voters headed to the polls today. even among his opponents netanyahu is considered the best man to lead his country. no matter the outcome, the u.s. approach to the palestinian conflict won't change. >>
heard a lot of the republican bickering from the campaign, because benghazi fell in the middle of the campaign between president obama and governor romney, and you heard residues of that this morning. i certainly understand that the republicans in the congress have an obligation to ask tough questions, but secretary clinton was forthcoming today, she took responsibility. she said she'd implement every single one of the recommendations of the accountability review board, and i thought she made a very good suggestion, let's work, the administration and congress, more effectively together on two areas. one is more funding for embassy security. the congress has not fully funded the obama administration request for embassy security, and, two, more funding for some of the governments in the region that need to be stronger to protect us. she pointed out congress has blocked funds that would have us assist the libyan government so, responsibility of security is the host government's responsibility. we rely on them. and that militia group in benghazi failed us on september 11th and 12th
. president obama spent the first four year i trying to get along with the republicans. they wouldn't do it. he's back in office, and leading up until yesterday, refused to cooperate. he drew the line in the sand, and, you know, it started to work. republicans came to the senses, okay, not touching the debt ceiling, let it float. in return, you see the democrats in the senate drawing up a budget. i think obama's -- his olive branch is, okay, i'll take this one extension to bring stability to the situation, but it's not happening again because we have to get the job doab. it's progress. it's better than the last few months. lou: some combative about it and characterize the president as being so contentious. it's the first intelligent step taken by the republicans and gives, you know, i i think hope to the nation, the first intelligent step taken by the president. they actually are moving towards one another. it looked to me like something we ought to be kind of saying hallelujah about other than analyzing, if i may, in such, well, i don't know, unsettling parts of the terms. >> it's progress
end of the campaign and republicans keep making accusations against the obama administration, they tried to paint a positive picture of the decimation of al qaeda for political reasons rather than sharing the specific information that they had. on one of those five sunday talk shows you were filling in and you had susan rice appear before your show. do you remember how she responded? this was five days after the attack in benghazi. >> well, first of all, i remember we were all requesting secretary of state hillary clinton because it was under her purview just in terms of booking but that's not who the white house put out. the white house controls they. they control this process of sunday shows and guests with an iron hand. >> were you surprised when susan rice was the designee? >> yes, because as president obama said later, she really had nothing to do with security decisions in benghazi or libya at large. she's the ambassador to the united nations. i didn't know what she was doing there other than that she was a high level and came armed at that point that this was not the r
that they have defeated the republican attempt to use this as the ultimate leverage point. they did that in 2011. it backfired on the country because we got the downgrade and backfired on republicans who lost more than president obama did in that standoff, which is why president obama is trying to take yes for an answer accept this and count on the fact that even though it is only until mid may that the same prak sis will be followed once they get beyond mid may. that a question. we will have to see whether republicans will willing to do that. >> 10 if i'm hearing you right, john, is that using the debt ceiling as kind of hostage in budget negotiations, democrats feel that they won on that and that this is not going to come back again? >> yes and the ultimate sort of dooms day threat from washington, which is we are going to have a default or either a default on debt or selective payment of federal government obligations, appears to be melting away and that puts us back in the more conventional political back and forth about budgets and the automatic cuts. sequester. that gets us back to where w
